The «Fair Trade Workplaces» designation
The designation recognizes the importance of solidarity among all workers in achieving a more just world. When your workplace chooses fair trade certified coffees and teas, it has a positive effect on people’s lives, and this every day.
Moreover, this gesture allows farmers to receive the fair trade premium that can be invested in the development of their businesses and their communities.
These investments include access to safe drinkable water and better health centers. The Fair Trade Workplaces designation encourages people to keep in mind the true value of the workforce and the cost of production.
The Fair Trade Workplaces Program is an initiative of Fairtrade Canada, managed in partnership with the Canadian Fair Trade Network (CFTN) and the Association Québécoise du commerce équitable (AQCÉ).
